Boo-Boo: Hillary Clinton Calls Lincoln a ‘Senator From Illinois’


abraham-lincolnThe terrible week continues for Hillary Clinton.

At Wednesday’s Rahm Emanuel-Hillary Clinton show for her book tour, she was responsible for another unforced error.

“I actually write about Rahm in the book,” Clinton said. “I asked him not to read it before we sat and did our interview! But it was in the very first chapter, the chapter I rightly call ‘Team of Rivals’ because that’s what it was in the beginning. A senator from Illinois ran against a senator from New York just as had happened way back with a senator from Illinois named Lincoln and a senator from New York named Seward. And it turned out the same way.”

Lincoln was never a senator, because he lost that election to Stephen A. Douglas.

  1. Didn’t Hillary say she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary??? Anyway, I guess her concussion had a terrible affect on her memory. Perfect for a President!
